ABOUT SONGS FOR SLIM
What Is Songs For Slim?
On February 19th, 2012 former Replacements guitarist Slim Dunlap was hospitalized due to a massive right brain stroke. Insurance does not pay for long term care and the general prognosis for Slim is that he will need around-the-clock care for the rest of his life. He needs our help.
Songs For Slim is a non-profit project that raises money for Slim and his family by having various artists cover songs from his solo works. All proceeds go towards assisting Slim and his family with the significant expenses related towards his long term care. After an initial, limited-edition deluxe 10" EP by The Replacements in January 2013, subsequent releases were pressed every month as limited edition split 7” vinyl 45s in beautiful, numbered picture sleeves featuring original artwork by Chris Mars. A total of 8 records were auctioned off in 2013 plus there was a special 45 released for Record Store Day and a commercial version of The Replacements EP was released in April 2013. All Songs For Slim releases are also available digitally. On November 12, 2013, we'll be putting out a 2CD compilation of all the Slim songs in the series plus some bonus tracks.
